Great leaders are polarizing, they have opinions. To form and present a clear opinion, you must first form a clear perspective. Perspective is everything. To tell your story, you have to know it intimately. To know it intimately you have to face your demons, fears, and traumas. In module 1, you’ll take a fresh approach to knowing your own story, and owning it like it’s the one you wanted.
Great leaders communicate powerfully, they have both tact and poise. Once you’ve built a firm perspective, you’ll need to master the tools of rhetoric to execute your most compelling communication.
Great leaders, like great TED speakers, use communication to persuade. Only practice makes persuasion. Individuals are compelled by presentation and persuaded by message. Master both and be the leader you were born to be.
